The REST server should be caching region locations for you.

On the .META. side, since its accessed so frequently, it should be
nailed into the block cache but if 1000 regions sitting beside that
.META. there could be contention.

There is also hbase.client.prefetch.limit, the number of region
locations to fetch every time we do a lookup into .META. Currently its
set to 10.  You could try setting this down to 1?

What are you seeing for request rates and load on the .META. hosting
